    Er, yes. That was indeed my point. DNA comparisons are not particularly helpful when we have >90% identical DNA with mice and >40% with fruit flies....

    Being considered a "human" doesn't automatically make eating non "humans" moral or right.

    Right, wrong, good, evil, morality, ethics, etc. are matters of opinion anyways.
    ^ got to it first. You're the one going around saying it's wrong because we're "similar" to animals. That doesn't really make sense. We're similar to all kinds of things, depending where you draw the lines. We're similar to carrots in a lot of ways, so it's immoral to eat vegetables?

    Are the carnivorous animals unethical?
    Discuss.

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    So if we are in a state of survival its ok to be unethical. What about panick when we arent really in a state of survival except within our own mind?

    It is helpful because it shows how connected we really are to nature, animals, plants etc.

    no, if we are in a state of survival it is still ethical. Panic? I suppose do trappers panic before they set up traps to catch coyote? probably not.

    how is that twisted? hunting animals and killing them for meat for survival purposes like starvation is much different.

    ok...some people hold strong to their values. Others have "situations" where its ok. Sounds like a ethical sliding scale and that is where your "ethics" twists upside down where as other peoples ethics twist at other areas along the scale. Basically goes from "unethical" to "ethical".

    So because animals and humans are equivalent in your eyes, it'd be moral to stalk, hunt and kill other humans for food if you were starving?
